You make the ultimate sacrifice. You go to war to save my life. You don't back down, you never will. Until your mission is fulfilled. You leave famly and friends at home. But still you are never alone. God is there standing by your side. For our country you will fight. Soon death is knocking at your door, But the knocks you do ignore. You fight through the wounds, and the pain. You know you will come home again. Time is precious, you know that well. Working through the pain will be a living hell. But Alex, I have faith in you. My love for you will stay true. I love you, you mean so much to me. Tears fill my eyes now I can not see. But I won't cry for you today. I know you wouldn't want it that way. So right now I'll dry my tears. I'll close my eyes, and fight my fears. I'm sitting and praying for you now. I let my feelings scream out loud. Alex, you truly are amazing. I hope you never think of changing. Your life will return to normal. I love you, my dear American Soldier.
